Published Sep 20, 2010Cooler nights and shorter days are ushering in the end of another busy summer music festival season, but not before the Canadian Deep Roots Music Festival kicks off its seventh year in Wolfville, Nova Scotia on the weekend of September 24 to 26.
Taking the stage are over 25 local, national and international blues, pop, rock, flamenco, jazz and folk musicians, including such well-loved acts as Fred Eaglesmith, Matthew Barber, Meaghan Smith and David Myles. All evening main stage concerts will be held at Wolfville's Acadia University Hall.
During the day the festival will offer many drumming, singing and puppetry workshops and daytime concerts for families at such venues as the Festival Theatre, Al Whittle Hall and Dental Hall. On Saturday, the Fresh Beats Rhythm Parade will make its way through downtown Wolfville at noon.
New this year, Connie Kaldor and Carmel Mikol will start the weekend's festivities by playing an Intimate Dinner Concert at Paddy's Pub on the evening of Thursday, September 23.
Festival passes are $85 for adults and $50 for students and can be purchased online at Ticketpro Canada or in person at any of these Ticketpro box office sites.
